New 4x2x1.8 Mixed Reef Setup


Recommended Posts

Hi reefers...

While slowing getting my new home key collection, also planning to setup a new tank at new place.

The tank will be 4x2x1.8 ( not so deep ) for mixed reef.

The cabinet will be using aluminum profile extrusion with acrylic for the cabinet wall ( easy maintenance, water resistant, variety of colors )

The display tank will be using 12mm~15mm glass with bracing on top and bottom. The top bracing is to prevent water splashing out although rimless is nice to have.

The overflow will be on the side with bean animal setup.

A snapshot of the aluminium extrusion on the font and back assemble to ensure the door size is able to fit into the frame.

You can consider terminating the emergency drain higher above the sump water level. 

In the event of emergency activation, you will have an audible cue.

Thanks for the suggestion.
As the overflow area is transparent, if the water level reaches the emergency pipe level or higher than the usual, is indicated some minor clogging at the normal pipe and would need to do some maintenance before it flow down from the emergency pipe.

It's true but when coraline algae grows on it,  maybe harder to see. 

Bean animal drain is dead silent. So an audible warning is very obvious. And this can be done with minimum effort and little drawbacks.
